I'm picking up a PS3 copy after work today. I've been hearing pretty bad things and I've learned not to expect much from EA ever since they got the exclusive NFL rights. Yet every year I continue to drop my hard-earned money for it because it's the only NFL sim option out there and I need my fix. I spend 98% of my Madden time playing franchise mode so I really wish they would work on that. It has somehow managed to get worse over the years. I just don't get it. Every year they introduce some new useless feature that nobody cares about rather than fixing the fundamental issues with the game. Most hardcore football fans could care less about "Gameflow" or "QB Vision". They want a realistic NFL game experience.
